If you're running 13" tires, it's hard to find light truck tires in that size.
You can probably order the Maxxis at Tire Discounters or just order some tires from Etrailer.com
I am just going with the Etrailer tires. About $111 including wheels, free shipping.

Let us know what you find.

I had a hard time finding 13" D rated which is what came on my TT from jayco. All I was able to find in a radial 13" was C rated so I stuck with what was reccomended. I went with the e-trailers bias Trailstars tires. So far they have been great but have noticed two things about these tires. When I got them in the mail (ordered standard delivery and to my suprise they were on the door step within 3 days!) they appeared mis-shaped/smashed in apperance once removed from the box but once on the rim and air added to seat the bead they resumed the normal tire shape. Also (possibly from bring a bias ply tire) after the trailer sits for several weeks/months they develope a flat spot and is noticable after moving the trailer but rounds/smooths out after 50 yards or so.

Fiberglass belted tires used behave like that I recall. Are these?

We were in South Dakota a few years ago. We saw a 5th wheel with triple axle with dualies. It was impressive. I have always wondered what he had inside that he needed that much tire tread. By the way it was not a toy hauler.

Well, if he blew one tire he'd still have 11 to carry the weight! LOL

I remember flat spotted, bias ply tires, from sitting! Sometimes it would take awhile to smooth out. I once had to explain it to some younger workers years ago due to a few older vehicles so equpped.

Newmar makes a 5er with dullies, can't say I've seen it in a tripple axle though.

Edit; Correction, used to make a 5er with tandem dullies. Just visited their website and it is nolonger offered, discontinued.

Maxxis is the way to go from my viewpoint. And stay away from GY Marathons like the plague. JMHO

Has anyone upgraded their wheel/tire size to the next larger size? According to according to a "tire expert", the tires would run cooler.
I have a Skylark and am considering the change. Any suggestions/ideas?
